iconectiv contributes to ONAP open source to help accelerate mobile network virtualization

Published ahead of the industry´s Open Networking Summit next month in Antwerp, Belgium, the latest release of international specifications to help build future software-led mobile networks includes a key contribution from iconectiv®, a company which provides information services that help service providers operate and manage their communications networks globally, the company said.

The specifications have been published by the LF Networking´s Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) to help combine and drive industry progress toward delivering new services quickly and cost-efficiently using network functions virtualization (NFV) over software-defined mobile networks within an open source framework.

iconectiv joined the ONAP initiative last year to help partner in solving the challenges of smoothly onboarding the VNFs that are crucial to the way 5G and other advanced software-defined networks will be managed and commissioned.
